Amusan: I Need To Improve On My Start And Finish


World Athletic Championship and Commonwealth Games record holder in the Women’s 100m Hurdles, Tobi Amusan says she still needs to work on her start and finish.

The Nigerian ‘Queen of Tracks’ on Sunday continued her run of form in the 100m hurdles as she won in 12.45, the second fastest time ever at ISTAF.

Runner-up to Amusan holder was the American Tia Jones in 12.58 with Jamaica’s Olympic bronze medallist Megan Tapper third in 12.66.

She reckoned that, despite her winning time, it was a far from a perfect performance: “I need to improve my start and finish. It is a little wobbly,” said Amusan.

ISTAF Berlin is part of the World Athletics Continental Tour silver-level meetings.

Meanwhile, Amusan will behave tough on Thursday as she alongside Ese Brume will be flying Nigeria’s flag while competing in the Diamond League final in Zurich.
